Probably something not $$$ worth fixing
I'm 99% certain, just making sure.
11 year old Panasonic rear projector pt-47wx49
Just turned off by itself earlier today, now i've got to unplug it and plug it back in, I will hear a relay clicking, then about 10 seconds later another relay clicks and that's it.
Just wondering if there's not some sort of reset switch or anything I can try. The plan was to replace it in the spring, so i'm not really interested in doing anything that will cost any amount of money just to hold off for another month or 2.
What is the specific model number? It's possible the problem is common, and a quick fix. Sounds like a power supply issue, and maybe you just blew a fuse or capacitor, or had a relay die.
My samsung plasma turned itself off a couple weeks ago, and wasn't getting power at all (stand by LED wouldn't turn on).. few minutes of research, $4 for some fuses off ebay, and a little screw driver action, she was running good as new.
This might help, but remember anything you change in the service menu is saved, so if you mess up the image, you won't be able to see the service menu to undo it.
